Set Report options on user interface launch

Is there a way to set the Report Options dynamically when the Operator Interface launches? Using CVI 8.5.

For example if user select HTML report then Sequence for Select a Reprot Generator for Producing the Report Body should be selected. Result Filtering to be set to All Results and Include Limits and Measurement checked.

Hello lvrat,


If you want this to happen each time the Operator Interface launches, you can place a sequence call in "FrontEndCallbacks.seq" to run "Configure Report Options" from the process model. This will essentially call "ModelSupport.seq" which runs modelsupport2.dll. This is exactly what happens when you click Configure->Report Options... from a TestStand Development System.


Note: FrontEndCallbacks.seq runs at the start of the Operator Interface and at the exit of the Operator Interface because it handles Login & Logout. You will need to prevent it from running this "Configure Report Options" sequence call at Logout by setting the Precondition to "!Parameters.logout". Also, If your Login step has a Post Action to "Goto step" -> "<EndGroup>", you must set the Post Action to "Goto Next Step".
